Tv over christmas and january

Did you know that over Xmas and in January, the TV networks take little interest in how many people watch their shows? So you might have noticed that the type of programs that are on change from the usual ones during this time, until the ratings war starts again in February. During this holiday time programming, what did you think of the quality of TV content? Did you even care what was showing as you were on holiday? Or did you use this time to relax in front of the 'box' and flick between channels? Perhaps it was convenient for you to keep your kids entertained? Maybe you have Pay TV and didn't even watch the 'mainstream' channels? Did you find it 'Christmassy' enough or do you think the networks just don't bother with that these days? Was there one channel you felt outdid the others with its programing?

Marivig says: We do not have pay TV, so we tried to find something worthwhile to watch, there was an absolute load of rubbish, repeats and films shown many times before, do they not realise. not everyone goes away for Christmas, there are some of us, that stay at home to relax and want to watch decent TV programmes over Christmas. I am originally from the UK, where they show lots of festive TV shows and new films,
I do not want to pay for Pay TV so it would be great if the programmers thought of the ones that stayed at home over Christmas.
